LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County Coroner identified Jose German, 49, as the man who died following a suspected DUI crash in the Sunrise Manor area on Aug. 8. His death was ruled accidental, caused by multiple blunt force trauma.
The incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. at Lamb Boulevard and Wyoming Avenue. Police say a Toyota Camry was traveling eastbound on New York Avenue at South Lamb Boulevard that had a posted stop sign.
A Mazda was traveling southbound on Lamb in the center travel lane approaching New York Avenue when the Toyota entered the intersection as the Mazda reached it. The front of the Mazda hit the left side of the Toyota, which caused it to redirect and strike a Chevrolet pickup truck.
German was transported to the hospital in critical condition and later died. The drivers of the Chevrolet and Mazda remained at the collision scene.
Police say the driver of the Mazda, identified as Osmany Fernandez-Martinez, 48, was suspected of being impaired and was booked into the Clark County Detention Center.
German’s death marks the 79th traffic-related fatality in the LVMPD’s jurisdiction for this year.
